Our Psychology and Peer Counselling classes have been working with the BB&BS organization for years.  We have senior students visit elementary schools where they are assigned a "buddy."  They meet their buddy every week for a semester, playing with them, mentoring them, and modelling positive behaviour.  Our students have to keep a journal about their experiences.


Here's the link to the Big brothers Big Sisters organization.  Think about being a mentor yourself.  Anyone can do it.
